Star-Crossed (Battered Hearts #2)
5 Spicy Stars!! O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?? He's in this book, and he's SCRUMPTIOUS!! I was captivated from beginning to end! My fan nearly blew up!! Yes, it was hot, hot, hot, but Jules and Romeo’s chemistry and the overall story is what made this read such a treat!! Romeo and Juliet you say?? Maybe your rolling your eyes and snickering…well don’t, because it worked and it worked VERY WELL!! I never once winced over the choice of names and w...more
Our hero is named Romeo, and our heroine is named Juliet. It was perfect for me! I love stories with outer obstacles so much more than when they create inner obstacles themselves! And mafia connections and families who hate each other are two a very tangible obstacle. I couldn't figure out how on earth they were going to get their HEA. But rest assure, they do!
"He’s a real bad boy." Jules felt her chee...more
Absolutely looooooved this book. Much better than the first in my opinion.
"Tell me you love me, Juliet."
"I love you, Romeo." The confession slipped past her lips like a prayer than than a confession. "Only you. Always."
Jules lives in a small town, in the same house with her twin excompeting-UFC-fighter-turn...more
Star Crossed is just… WOW. I can’t even find the words. Since reading an excerpt of Star Crossed a couple of months back, I’ve been excited about this book. When I finally got my fingers on it, I couldn’t wait to get started. First off, the hero and heroines’ names are Romeo and Juliet and the book is called Star Crossed [star-cross’d lovers ;) get it?]. This could go either way: an amazing book or a really bad and cheesy one. It was AMAZING!
Loving Romeo again...
I loved this one! The book was similar in theme to 12 Rounds (finished last week) but so different and so good! Both books were actually!
I am taking up kickboxing with real MMA fighters with a pole dancing friend of mine and this book just confirmed what a freaking great idea that is! Jules rocks it out of the pa...more
Note : I did not read the first book in this series because I'd s...more
I liked it well enough but I didn't love it.
I had a hard time with the beginning of Star Crossed. Love me some great dirty talkers, however, Romeo and Jules didn’t achieve a place in my Hall of Fame. Was I ever a happy camper when everything got better shortly afterwards. I was truly wowed by their erotic encounter in Las Vegas. Holy smokes! I totally loved it, and I ended up fantasizing by saying to myself “Romeo, please eat me too!” Romeo was deliciously scrumptious and sexy as all...more
This is a truly brilliant and decidedly erotic contemporary romance built around Shakespeare’s most excellent and lamentable tragedie of Romeo and Juliet – a story retold so many times in history and brought right up to date here in this one.
Romeo Wellings and Jules Conner are our star crossed lovers – their opposing ‘houses’ being different UFC camps with a strong competitive rivalry. He insists on calling her Juliet after the firs...more
Blog rating: 4.5/5
“I want this night to be special,” Romeo admitted, sounding embarrassed as he did. His gaze ran over her for one hot moment before he sighed. “I need it – something to make life feel like it’s worth living, you know?”
Two night ago Jules had been celebrating this man’s defeat. She had shouted in triumph when Clay laid into Romeo viciously enough to be crowned heavyweight champion of the world, and everything about the moment had been ama...more
Stark naked, still on her hands and knees, Jules grinned like the Cheshire cat. "Those are big-boy condoms." Bare-chested and barefoot, Romeo held out his hands and looked down at himself as if it were obvious. "I'm a big boy."
Meet Romeo and Juliet, no, not that Romeo and Juliet...
This Romeo and Juliet...
Romeo Moretti and Juliet Connor. Romeo is a MMA professional fighter with connections to the mob and Juliet is a lawyer/cop/ex-Olympic fighter badass...more
The characters are great, Jules is feisty and strong, Romeo charming and seductive. I found their romance cute but if I am honest was put off by the whole Romeo and Juliet theme....more
Romeo Wellings, a UFC fighter just lost a fight, and he is not happy about it. He also saves the life of Melody, his r...more
At the very end of book one, I got a whiff of Romeo Wellings and Juliet Connor,...more
A great hawt read with great chemistry and hawt sex between H and H. Fantastic family connections between Romeo and his brothers Casanova and Valentino. *I'm really really hoping we get stories on these two as well on Chuito(no blood relations). And also between Juliet and...more
And WOW Romeo is completely amazing and delicious !! I was hooked right from the start..life could have stopped if I'd let it, though towards the end I just had to put it down to catch my breath and to try and prolong it as much as I could! This story is funny, sexy and completely addictive....
The story is pretty HOT, but not only is it HOT (sorry did I already say that?!)...more
LOVE THIS SERIES! omg this series NEVER lets me down! Book one will always be one of my fav books ever and book two made that list as well!
Loved that they are named Romeo and Juliet too heh heh heh.
I really want there to be a story about Valentino and Casanova. Gawdd those would be good stories.
Love these men. LOVE THEM.
This one was even better than the first one ,it was absolutely fantastic.
I loved it . The characters were unique , I don't think I ever read a book with characters similar to this one.
The writing was great , the story was compelling and H.O.T.There is usually something in every book that bothers but not in this one.There wasn't one thing that I didn't like about this one.
I hope the next book in the series gets published soon
This take on Romeo and Juliet I wish I had when I was in school it would have made for more interesting and compelling reading for all of us. I think even the guys in class would have loved this book as well. Romeo a UFC fighter with ties to the mafia what male wouldn’t love that and Juliet a badass attorney and part-time deputy, yes this is a Romeo and Juliet I would have not gotten the cliff notes on. Yes, I know it’s not age appropri...more
But I think that's where the sweet part really is. Though they live in different states, they kept in touch every day after they slept together in Las Vegas until he moved to her town for training. First, with...more
The only problem I had, and it was a relatively minor one, was the vague description of the dress Jules wears during a key scene early on in the story. The reader was left guessing what made the dress so special even though her brother and later her date, Romeo, both commented on the significance of her outfit of choice. The description came much later in the evening.
I hated how Jules and Romeo felt like they had to hide their relationship from everyone. They were good together, but I felt like Jules when she yelled at Romeo for hiding so m...more
I received this book free via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I don't gush and give false praise – I don't believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book.
Well, I'd recently read the two Eden books by Kele and loved them -so much that they had a second re read straight away. Kele is a new author to me so I was pleased to see the first two Battered Hearts series on Netgalley. I was hoping for more of t...more

“Good thing,” Romeo choked out, his hold on her tightening to the point that it was almost hard to breathe. “’Cause I know I’m in love with you.”
Sweaty, tired, and sore, Romeo sat on the mat in the massive martial arts center Clay owned with Jules and Wyatt. While trying to catch his breath, he watched Tino move to the beat of his own drummer as he worked out using a punching bag. With white headphones in his ears, his brother bounced and danced and kicked at that stuffed sack of beans, and for the life of him, Romeo couldn't tell if he was trying to hurt the thing or date it.”
